Mokka Kaffi

An Icelandic tradition since 1958.  Mokka is one of Reykjavík´s oldest cafés and the first to install an espresso machine and serve espresso, cappuccino, and café latte in Iceland. There´s a tempting selection of sandwiches, cakes, waffles, coffee and hot chocolate. 

The déckor (red carpet, leatherette booths, and stools) hasn´t changed much although the art on the walls is changed every 4–6 weeks as the café has doubled as an Art gallery with new art for sale since opening. There are echoes of the 60´s about this cozy, music-free café where the seats are usually filled by loyal customers.
